LECTURE III.

On the nature and proper use of EMPHASIS, by which the truth and force of sentiment is conveyed.

GENTLEMEN,

The word Emphasis, etymologically considered, means signification or force. It is a Greek word, and when applied to speech, imports the marking by the voice any word or words in a phrase or sentence, as more important than the rest.
